3D Paper Popsicle Craft Instructions
First print out the template on white cardstock and cut out the pieces. Trace the template twice on the red cardstock and twice on the blue cardstock (or colors of choice).
Cut all 4 popsicle shapes out. *For this craft, we used the white template pieces as one of the colors. If using a color instead of white, you will need 6 popsicle shapes instead of 4.
Next, glue the jumbo popsicle stick to the center of one of the blue popsicles. Grab all of the other popsicle templates and fold them in half vertically.
Take a red folded popsicle template and glue one side on top of the blue template. Repeat this step with all of the popsicles shapes going in a red – white – blue order. Glue the final white template piece to both the red and the bottom blue template.
The 3D popsicle craft is complete!
How cute would these be for a pretend sweets shop or ice cream truck?! Kids could make all different colors to give their customers a choice of different pretend flavors.
